UX5 Drone

Trimble designs and manufactures industry-leading unmanned aircraft system (UAS) for quarry surveying and mapping.

Features

  • Leading image acquisition quality and data accuracy
  • All-terrain and all-weather performance
  • Reverse thrust for precise landings in confined spaces
  • A durable and reliable solution for intensive use
  • Full automatic Trimble Access workflows for ease-of-use and safe operation
  • Simple data processing with Trimble Business Center photogrammetry module

Quarries require quick and accurate surveying to monitor and measure ground terrain changes. The UX5 is a suitable mapping tool for such applications, not only for its versatility but also and most importantly for the accurate deliverables generated together with the Trimble Business Center Photogrammetry Module.

Applications

  • Surface exploration and mapping
  • Removed volumes measurement
  • Visual site inspection
  • Stockpile monitoring and volume calculation
  • Surface calculation and analysis
  • New road projections
  • Monitoring plants, pools and other facilities

Benefits

  • Survey work is not in-situ so does not interrupt the quarrying process
  • Ensures optimal safety for the surveyors
  • Faster than surveyor with traditional tools
  • No interruption to operations
  • Safer than traditional surveying with no risks from hazardous terrain, environmental contaminants, or dangerous machinery.

Take mapping to a new level and beyond

Engineered to help mapping and surveying professionals who require the highest accuracy work more efficiently, the Trimble UX5 sets a new standard in mapping and surveying by combining a robust and highly user-friendly system with a custom-designed camera that offers the most impressive deliverables. The Trimble UX5 keeps you productive all day long - whatever job you're working on.

Leading image acquisition quality and data accuracy

Designed to follow the latest developments in the ‘prosumer’ camera market, the Trimble UX5 ensures optimal image quality along with maximum photogrammetric accuracy. The UX5 camera has – unlike a traditional compact camera – a large imaging sensor that captures very sharp, color-rich images, even in dark or cloudy conditions. The 24 MP camera give the UX5 the ability to capture data down to 2.0 cm (0.79 in) resolution.

All-terain and all-weather performance

The remarkable design of the Trimble UX5 ensures employability nearly everywhere and in practically all weather conditions. Whether you choose to fly in rainy conditions along windy seashores, in hot deserts, or in a snowy, mountain terrain, the Trimble UX5 is a dependable solution to gather high quality data without compromising coverage.

Reverse thrust for precise landings in confined spaces

The Trimble UX5 overcomes the limitations of traditional UAS landings with the addition of an advanced control method. Based on reversed thrust, this innovative improved altitude measurement results in landing confidence every time. 

Durable and reliable solution for intensive use

Based on a production method patented by Trimble, the Trimble UX5 combines an impact resistant foam structure and internal and external composite elements that give the UX5 its extreme durability and strength. Additionally, the design focus has been on delivering an easy to maintain airframe that can be renewed at users’ discretion by a plug-and-play fitting of the protected internal electronics.

Fully automated Trimble Access workflows for ease of use

The Trimble Access Aerial Imaging application loaded onto the Trimble Tablet Rugged PC operates the Trimble UX5 and is a single software tool for planning your aerial missions, performing pre-flight checks and monitoring your flights – all with intuitive workflows that ensure reliable results. In the field, the operator is guided through the pre- and post-flight sequences with step-by-step digital checklists. For additional time and resource savings, many of the Trimble UX5 checks are automatically verified by the software and do not require any interaction from the operator. Plus, the fast and intuitive workflow allows the Trimble UX5 to be ready to fly in only minutes ensuring minimal downtime.

Image processing

The Trimble UX5 aerial image data can now be processed into powerful deliverables with the new Trimble Business Center (TBC) photogrammetry module. Specialized computer-vision algorithms produce very accurate results automatically, with minimal manual interaction. Provides a stable and reliable photogrammetric system delivering excellent results without requiring specialized photogrammetry knowledge or experience.
